are considered and involved. >> commissioner borden: it would be ideal if the inspection happen while they were fully operating; the volume on a tuesday afternoon might be different in on a saturday night. >>: that will be in direct violation of the permit. that is one of the reasons what we do a follow-up. even when we do inspections on-site we have had venues where we have large bands there. as nicholas said, those inspections are thorough; we raise and lower the sound. we back the sound down until we know it's contained. this is a cost incurred by them. >> commissioner borden: i don't want to make it more difficult. in some ways i think it is hard to replicate turning up the volume and music system with the band. >>: that is true. live music tends to be louder. we have a lot of experience doing this. we know that a push-up the dj system to the 95-96, 100 something dba we can get the numbers. the math is the math. >> commissioner borden: we talk about the boxes. are there general soundproofing requirements? a lot of places get hot. the minute windows are open -- >>: attached to
. >> commissioner borden? >> well, i'm very sympathetic to the project sponsor and the desire just to move a few blocks away. i am concerned because in this area, there are safeway, wells fargo, panda express, subway sandwiches, starbucks, unfortunately it's like a glut of forual retail and it's across from mcdonalds and i understand there are some issues with the police around that area. and so i don't think that someplace where people can actually sit down and eat would help that situation that already exists with people kind of standing around and engaging in activities that, perhaps, they shouldn't be. so that is one of the reasons. the other reason is the concentration of formula retail. it's been such a long journey in trying to revitalize the lower fillmore. and create kind of this vibrant, arts and cultural jazz district, which never really quite came to fruition. there was always hope and promise, once we got beyond redevelopment we got to a place we were having more locally-owned businesses. i'm sad to hear about the indian restaurant that is not thriving there, but this is an older b

representatives, in attendance were commissioners borden and moore and i'll ask for their comments when i'm done giving you an overview of what happened because this is a potential action item for the commission. i had a report from dhr which was led by shawn sher born and it consisted of three different thing, he gave us a timetable as to the selection, he gave us the job announcement which is to be issued tomorrow on the 1st of september which will be a matter of public record when it's issued and then he described the battery management test that candidates will be -- some of the candidates will be asked to complete and there's also going to be a supplemental questionnaire and these were questioned with input from subject matter expert who happens to be our previous secretary linda avery which i think is a good person to have input on these matters. and in terms of the timetable, the job announcement is going to be posted for a period of 45 days from the 1st of september to march 15th, between march 18th and this is a projected calendar, and march 29, the dhr with the help of the subject matt
, too, but thank you. >>> thank you. >> commissioner borden. >> yeah, [speaker not understood]. i don't have an issue with the office allocation. i do think the five story buildings look like parking garages. they're not very -- they're just kind of large, square -- the five story one, kind of podium buildings that connect larger buildings just seem -- they're not -- they need to be broken up a little bit. they feel like giant boxes kind of dropped next to the more, i guess the more visually interesting taller buildings. so, maybe just -- i'm not an architect and other people can probably better suggest modulation. but doing something with those buildings in particular to make them more inviting. i mean, and looking at the ground floor doesn't look like -- there aren't awnings and signs on them yet. it doesn't look inviting for retail space. so, that's just something i'd think about, some design issues. but otherwise i think it's, you know, it fits in our guidelines of being a good project. >> commissioner moore. >> this is an extremely difficult site to build on. i regret that the pr
. commissioner borden. i'm sorry, public comment on this item. seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioner borden. >> i'm very supportive. i think this makes a lot of sense. i was just wondering if we thought also, larger i know in the past the issue around medical use both related to ucsf and cpmc and now it looks like both are leaving that immediate neighborhood. there might be a desire to look at a larger conversation in general about the uses along sacramento street. i imagine this will be less of an issue in the future. i don't know if that's something that the supervisors are starting to look at generally, but i know that ucsf put that property on the block which is on california street and then cpmc's plan are to close down the existing hospital and facilities they have there. >> thank you, commissioner borden. of course, it's something that we're looking at. i don't know how it's going to affect the ncd at this time, but we're involved in both those processes with ucsf and cpmc. so, we'll keep that in mind, thank you. >> great. in term of the zoning for anne marie, it
